My buddy was on probation for domestic and him and his girlfriend were playing around. He’s never had one violation and he said all his payments and court requirements are up to date. It got caught on camera and reported as domestic a violence case, resulting in a violation of a “No Assault Contact” order and a probation violation, which is his first one. He said his girlfriend was subpoenaed to come and she was actually gonna testify on his behalf, confirming that it was a misunderstanding but she says she doesn’t really like going to court and is really nervous that the judges won’t believe her and probably won’t show up? What would happen if she doesn’t come? I didn’t know where else to ask and found this website. Please help.
Your buddy needs an attorney. It appears the they have a good case, photographic evidence of the violation. He had better have a good reason, and she show up to cooberate his story or he will be violated and punished.
As she is subpoenaed she must show or be in contempt of the court and subject to fines and jail.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please review my efforts to assist by quickly and frankly responding to your question with AVVO. Also, please realize this PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. As the response is based on very limited information it MUST NOT be relied upon as the basis for action or inaction. If you are seeking legal advice which you can and should rely upon you will have to engage an attorney, provide all of the facts in detail and answer their questions. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. That may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will require payment for our services. Providing counsel and representation is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
